Zyklon - Storm Manifesto

Zyklon - Storm Manifesto

Zyklon are blackened death metal band from Noway, featuring members of Emperor and Myrkskog and with lyrics written by Bård “Faust” Eithun. This set comprises of the band’s first (and to date only) three studio albums 2001’s World OV Worms, 2003’s Aeon and 2006’s Disintegrate.

Zyklon are a hugely talented act and the music herein is of the utmost quality. Zyklon add a large amount of interesting twists to their music, mixing groove and occasional thrash riffs to their utterly heavy Blackened-Death base, adding blistering guitar solos and book-ending songs with electronic sections.

The music is absolutely professional, incredibly creative and unquestionably heavy. If you enjoy high speeds and frequent blast beats then Zyklon should definitely appeal to you. If you need further convincing listen to the more straightforward tracks like ‘Worm World,’ ‘Disintegrate,’ or ‘Core Solution,’ and judge for yourself, or if you are into more complex and progressive metal, check out ‘Transcendental War: The Battle Between Gods,’ or ‘An Eclectic Manner.’

Zyklon are one of my personal favourite extreme metal acts and I highly recommend them. This set contains all of their studio output in one go, so cannot be faulted in any way. If you like extreme metal, I urge you to give the band a try.
